The team made it.
As I said in the original "Ellen" post of July 19, there had been no off-season arrests for the 2009 UGA football squad. However, there was still some time left before practice officially started. Would the team stay together and out of trouble?
The answer has been a resounding, yes.
A lot of work went on behind the scenes to take a UGA team that seemed cocky and self-absorbed, and was definitely not gellin', and turn it into a mature and sophisticated unit. Fun, cool, hip, without being out of control. Dr. Scholls would be proud. I definitely am.
Congratulations to the coaching staff and the young men in the Red and Black.
